The creative and excellently prepared dinner was equaled only by the fantastic Andy Weinzler Jazz Quartet !
We’ll be back.

Absolutely awesome! My wife and I enjoyed it and will be coming back. Everyone is right - the pumpkin cheesecake to top the evening off is a must. John was one of the best servers I have ever had.

Their site should have disclosed New Years eve special menu. Several in our party were looking forward to items part of the online menu but they were not on the holiday menu. Portions were on small side for pricing.

The food tasted good, but two of the dishes were lukewarm. The most disappointing thing was that the prices of the entrees were ridiculously inflated from the usual menu. I realize New Year’s Eve menus are often pricier than normal, but when the price of an entree is normally $24 and is increased to $36 (!!!!) for New Year’s Eve, that’s just plain gouging. We won’t be going back.

Wife treated me to dinner for my birthday. 7 o'clock reservation, seated right away. We started with a glass of wine and Toronto cocktail. The drink was delicious. Crispy artichoke appetizer was very good. For entrees, she ordered the scallops, I had the Wagyu steak. Main courses were unbelievable. Scallops cooked perfectly, steak was tender and seasoned exactly right. Chocolate terrine dessert was also great. Our waiter was very attentive, and answered any questions we had regarding the menu. Overall a great meal. 5 Stars!

Restaurant is overall wonderful, food is delicious and the wait staff are top notch professionals, they make eye contact continuously. The noise level with the open concept floor plan is kind of a game changer if you want to have a "long overdue" conversation with friends. May want to consider installing some sound absorbing devices in the main area. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being able to look into the kitchen and see what the pros are up to. I'm always looking for great, tested tips. Overall very satisfied and will be back.

This was our first time trying Prescott Provisions for our annual girls holiday dinner. The service was great, food was amazing and the atmosphere is really nice. We ordered specialty drinks, the Brussels Sprouts(amazing!) and the Pumkin Ravioli and Salmon. All great dishes! We will definitely be back!

One of my favorite places. Fantastic menu with outstanding service. I’m sure I’m not alone here, but those Crispy Brussels Sprouts...To. Die. For!!! Whether it’s stopping in for a signature crafted cocktail and a small plate or a full meal, Prescott has yet to disappoint (and I can’t see any reason why they ever would). Will be back again and again!!

This is our second trip to P.P.'s. The first time we took foodies and they loved it. This time we took local brewers/restauranteurs. They also enjoyed the food, saying they'd be back. The food is creative and delicious, the dishes, truly a labor of love. The servers are very good, and this time, Rebecca was was a delight. This restaurant is two steps above most restaurants.

Every time we come here the food is absolutely phenomenal! One of the best restaurants in the Buffalo area hands down. Exceptional service, great cocktails, and the food is incredible. When you come here, the beef tartare and Brussel sprouts are a must!

Excellent restaurant! The food was fantastic and definitely upper end. You won't find all of the interesting appetizers (small plates) at one place like Prescott's. Definitely worth checking out. You will not be disappointed!

Service was great, waiter was helpful with recommendations for appetizers, dessert and drinks. Because it was our first time there, we decided to order a bunch of the small plates in order to try a bunch of different things. The octopus was so good we ordered a second dish of it, apple salad, artichokes, and brussel sprouts were all worth ordering too. Definitely leave room for dessert. The pumpkin cheesecake was served with a crumble and cinnamon whipped cream, it was one of the best cheesecakes I’ve ever had!
Highly recommend eating here.

This was my first visit to the restaurant and I was so very impressed from my first step into the place. I liked the modern,open,industrial feel of the restaurant. Our server,Julie, was wonderful! She knew the drink and food menu inside out and was able to answer any question we posed. Her recommendations were spot on and our drinks and food orders were not a disappointment. The menu was very tempting with interesting options and preparations. The popovers were light and airy and the fish options were cooked perfectly!
Well done Prescott Provision! Cannot wait to return!

Beautiful restaurant with interesting menu and great cocktails. It’s truly a gem in Tonawanda. Our server was nice, but honestly not as attentive as I’d hope for. I really wanted a glass of wine with the pasta course and the food runner who dropped it off didn’t offer another drink and ended up not seeing our server until we had finished. We also waited probably 15 min to pay after our check had been delivered. These were minor issues and did not by any means ruin the evening, but just things I noticed. I do have to mention the server helping the table next to us, because she handled a difficult costumer with amazing professionalism. This man was belligerent and couldn’t stop yelling how much he enjoyed the restaurant, which is great other than the fact he was oblivious to the fact he was bothering other tables. Especially when he interrupted another couples dinner to loudly tell them how great of a meal he had, this server very calmly got him back in his seat and diffused the situation. I really can’t wait to come back and try more off the menu, keep up the great work.

Food was ok. The menu is trying to be fancy with the combinations. Lots of wine choices very few beer choices. Desert menu was lacking. Cost did not equal what we received.

Consistently amazing place. Great service (veterans, not airhead kids), great food, cool ambiance - neat to be able to watch your food cooked.

Try the Waygu steak - to die for!

We have been there twice now and each time was a great experience. The food was excellent, and our waiter, John, who we had both times is great. He is very efficient and polite. It can be a little loud, but I guess it depends who’s sitting at the next table. We look forward to going back.

Food was outstanding! Service was good once we got waited on. It took quite some time for anyone to come over to our table. It seemed most of the wait staff went out of their way to avoid making eye contact with us! However, our server once he came over (perhaps there was confusion as to who was assigned our table) was very good and attentive. Overall we were very pleased with the experience (after the initial hiccup!)
